Our people are our differentiation, providing the right balance of academic rigor, pragmatic business know how, and industry expertise. You pay to have our senior people work on your project, as opposed to getting junior staff and paying for their corporate overhead.

Our staff have more than 30 years of experience working with clients in a variety of industries, executing quantitative and qualitative research for both consumer and B2B audiences.
Senior Level Attention
Clients who engage our firm work with our senior people – those with the most experience and expertise. Senior staff members with both technical and business acumen partner with you throughout the entire engagement; you don’t get pushed to our junior staff.
Customized Solutions
We listen to what our clients need, and take into account who they are in crafting our solution. A client that rarely does market research likely has different needs than one that spends hundreds of millions each year on research. One size does not fit all, so we don’t try to shoehorn our clients into some predetermined set of solutions.
Advanced Analytics
We go beyond the traditional descriptive and crosstab analyses. Even when not the specific focus of our engagement, we dive deeper into the data as a routine part of our analyses, looking at correlations and predictive models to understand what’s driving what, or running a segmentation just to see if there is a more interesting way to summarize the data. We use analytics as a tool to provide more value along the way, not as an excuse to charge you more money.
